Born locally in West Kirby, Marianthi has been taking photographs for over twenty years.  However it is since investing in a digital camera in 2007 that she has become passionate about the art of photography.

Whether it be capturing the interaction of light on the land, highlighting the intricate details of a flower or plant or recording the architectural landscapes of urban life, she enjoys the challenge of new and varied subjects.

Land and seascape photography remain her particular love and form the subjects of most of her fine art photography.  The stunning views around the North West coast, with its majestic skies and ever-changing light offer a constant source of inspiration.

Her images have been featured in several international publications and she produces a range of greetings cards, fine art prints and calendars of local views which are available in outlets across Wirral as well as on her website.

Mark Howard has over 25 years experience as a photojournalist, travelling extensively around the world exploring many key issues, including

  • agricultural reform in Ghana
  • the diamond trade in Sierra Leone
  • the role of the Church of South India in local communities
  • conflict resolution in Sri Lanka
  • political upheaval in Haiti
  • following the coca trail in Bolivia
  • conducting research for a film in India based around the Beatitudes
  • the rights of indentured sugar workers in Fiji
  • the nuclear legacy in the Solomon Islands
  • church and state in Tonga
  • meeting and interviewing women’s peace groups in Northern Ireland


His photographic work has been exhibited in a number of London galleries and a book of his photographs, ‘Archive’ was published in 2005.


Summing up his philiosophy on the arena in which he works, he says: " when we lose sight of what charity should be about, it can quickly become the fuel of injustice. A status quo of giver and receiver develops; that is very dangerous, and I want to help people to shake that off. Charity should be about change. It is fundamentally revolutionary.”


Mark is available to speak at events, as well as running day and residential workshops. To ‘BookMark’, please call 0151 632 1657 to discuss your requirements, availability and costs.
